Living Holy Before God

I often like to look back at history as it teaches me a lot of things. It’s good when we can learn from the past and see how some people were successful, and others were failures. It’s been quite some time since I have seen a real move of God in the church.

I remember back decades ago when the body of Christ experienced the holy spirit in a real way. People were so passionate and hungry for God that oftentimes the churches were packed full of people. They could sit for hours and listen to someone preach the word.

As time went on, the hunger for God seemed to disappear. People stepped back from their commitment to him compared to what they used to do before. Their walk with the Lord stepped down several levels.

When I asked the Lord why this was, he pointed me back to years ago when people would pray at the end of a service. It was in those times of prayer that they seemed to really hear from him more clearly.

Eventually, over time, the church stopped praying this way. People were expected to seek God through prayer and their Bibles at home. Nowadays, it seems as if people only seek God one day a week at church.

Praying For Revival

The prayer team here at Aftermath Ireland is praying for Revival. But if we really want to see this happen, it has two starts within ourselves. If we want to see the move of God, we have two starts to live holy once again.

This leads me to a question that we should ask ourselves every day. Are we in the right standing with God? Many Believers would say yes because they have asked Jesus into their hearts. Well, let me ask you another question “are you walking in the spirit and following God’s principles?



What Is Holiness?

Holiness is not something that is brought up in church much today. When I grew up, we were very familiar with that word and what it meant. Many of us were taught it before we could even pronounce it.

The Bible is very clear about how we should live before the Lord. God wants us to live a holy life that reflects Jesus in all that we do. This isn’t saying that we have to be perfect. It just means that we have to try our best. If we make a mistake, we can ask for forgiveness according to 1 John 1:9.




The Story Of Jacob

I’d like to talk about the story of Jacob because I feel that it is so applicable. The Bible says that he stole his brother’s blessing and then ran away. He eventually got married and served his father-in-law for 20 years. Then one day, God told him to go back to where he came from and settle down.

When Jacob heard this, he knew he had a big job ahead of him. So before he did anything else, he got his life in check and purified himself.

God is no different today. He has assignments for each of us to complete that is impossible for us to do on our own. In order to complete them, we have to clean up our lives first.

Living Holy

If I could make this article on Holiness practical, I would say that it means a holy lifestyle is one where God controls every decision and action.

This means we need to set a guard over our minds and our mouths. We need to think before we say a word. We need to think before we take action.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and words cannot be taken back. We can try as hard as we can, but words spoken inappropriately cannot ever be returned to us. That is why it is better not to say anything at all if we can help it.

Decide today to keep yourself pure, an instrument that God can use. When you live a holy life, you will be ready for God to use you for every good work.



How Does The Lord See You

The cross of Jesus next to an open Bible.Somewhere inside each and every person is a longing desire to live a life of significance. They want to make a difference in this world of Jesus. The question is, how can you do it if you aren’t sure how the Lord sees you? What you can take comfort in knowing is that you are part of the family of God. You are His child, and He loves you. Since you are a family member, you have access to His amazing grace.


You Are In Christ

Time and again, people just don’t know what they have in Christ. They don’t take the time to pray to God and look to the scriptures. They have a wrong perception of who God is, and it is hurting them more than they know.

They believe that God is impressed with the performance. They think that if they do enough, He’ll bless them. The truth is, it’s not about what you can do for Him but what He has already done for you through His Son. It’s about grace and not about our works.

Even while you were a sinner, God loved you and gave His Son for you. You are no longer under the dominion of sin and the devil. When God looks at you, He sees you as righteous because Jesus took your place. That’s something to shout about. Thank You, Jesus.

God desires that you experience His love for you. He wants goodness and mercy to chase you down all the days of your life. God is good, and His plans for you are pleasant.


Live For Jesus

As you received Jesus, the Bible says to continue living your life in the same way. By faith, through grace, you are to enjoy the things of God. As you receive salvation through faith, you can also receive God’s grace in order to do what He has called you to do. All you need to do is step out and take action.

When you put action to your faith, that is when God’s extraordinary power starts to happen. His anointing and glory will flow in and through you. When you walk into a room, the presence of the Lord does too. When you carry out daily prayer, the power of God flows into the situations you are praying about.

The Lord sees you through the blood of Jesus. This means that His grace is yours, and you have access to it right now. You’ve been accepted into His family, and God will work through you as you go about your day. When you let that truth sink in, it will change your life forever. As a result, it will also spill over into the lives of those around you.

Press Into Knowing God

Even if you are in a place where you’re not sure what your purpose and calling are, you can still press in and believe that God is in your life. The catch is you have to allow the truth of God’s goodness to become real to you, and then you can make a difference in the lives of others.

Every day when you wake up, the best thing you can do is to raise your hands in prayer and tell God you completely depend on Him. That you are leaning entirely on Him, and you’re going to fall if He doesn’t come through. The truth is He won’t fail you.

God desires that you experience liberty in Christ so that you are blessed, and those around you are blessed too. When you fall in love with God, life gets exciting. Let Him love you, and your life will become a living banner of the Lord Most High. Then the reality that you’re His child and full of His grace will explode to the next level.



Faith In The One True God

Anyone who believes in God recognizes just how important faith is. Faith is the most significant part of our relationship with God. In Hebrews, the Bible says that without faith, you are not going to please God in any way. The Word of God also says that anything is possible for those who keep their faith in God. One might ask if we need faith. Is faith in God really that important?

The answer is an emphatic yes. Thankfully, Believers in God have the same faith that Jesus has because it has been given to them as a gift. It’s not about your faith in Him but the fact that His faith is at work within your life right this very moment.

Unfortunately, this good news often falls on deaf ears. Most Christians do not want to hear this. Time and again, they pray for God to increase their faith. Even those who followed Jesus when He walked on this earth thought the same thing. When they asked the Lord to grow their faith for them, He told them that if they had faith as small as a mustard seed, it could move mountains!


Faith As Small As a Mustard Seed

What an amazing thing for Jesus to say. Faith, even in its smallest form, is so powerful. It could pick up a tree or a mountain and throw it into the sea. The point is that the disciples didn’t need more faith. They simply needed to use what they were given.

It is important to note that we are born again by the faith of Jesus and not faith in Jesus. There is a difference. In order to step over into the family of God, we had to be given faith as a gift in order to exercise it and ask the Lord into our hearts. Jesus did everything for us so that we might be saved.

That is what makes salvation so special. It is a gift from Heaven. There is no way we could ever have saved ourselves. All that salvation is and can do is because God loves us. He wanted a relationship so much that He even provided the faith needed in order to see that come into a spiritual reality when we prayed the salvation prayer.


Human Faith Is Different

There is a difference between spiritual faith and human faith. There is a certain amount of faith it takes to sit down in a chair and trust that it will hold our weight. It also takes human faith to believe that when we flip a switch, the lights will turn on. Everyone has the ability to walk in a natural faith. This is all based on our five physical senses.

When it comes to being Born Again and filled with God’s Spirit, we believe in something we cannot sense. Godly faith is intangible. You may now be wondering where faith comes from.

The Bible says that spiritual faith comes from hearing God’s Word. There is no way to be saved unless one hears the Good News of the Gospel and then prays. When we hear God’s Word, faith is imparted into our spirits. We had to have faith given to us this way in order that we might believe what we cannot see.

Right in that special moment of inviting Jesus into our hearts, a measure of faith is given to us. This is the same measure every Believer receives when they pray to be saved.

It is just like being served soup from a ladle. Everyone who has a bowl receives the same amount of soup because the same ladle is being used to feed everyone. The misconception some Christians have is that they believe one person got a ladle full of faith and another only received a spoonful. This is not true.

They mistakenly believe that one person received more faith than others. They think that the Lord has favorites and that maybe He gave more faith to someone than He gave to someone else.

Even the great Apostle Paul received the same amount of faith as Christians who are living today (Romans 12:3). We all have the same faith. It is the faith of Jesus Christ.

As you go from here, always remember that faith in the One True God is the same for each and every one of us. There is so much you can do right now with the faith that you have in your heart right now.
